Making a brave, contemporary, and universal statement, this book presents a tale based around the atrocities of the Holocaust, blurring the line between truth and fiction. The story begins with a man regaining consciousness, finding himself naked in a mass grave with no idea who he is. Cold weight presses upon all parts of his body, and he feels what must be someone’s frigid foot against his own, sole to sole. He pushes up, inching toward the indefinite outline of the bulk above him, focusing only on his own survival. But in a religious war, staying alive will depend on which side he has chosen. Portraying a culture obsessed with the spectacle of horror, this novel employs the evil of a historical period to depict a chilling future.

Editorial Reviews

"Dodd escorts Kafka into the 21st century, every bit as horrifying and brutal as antebellum Europe, just when we thought we'd finally closed the door on senseless nationalism, extremism, and division. D. O. Dodd is a brave and original writer."  —Joseph Kertes, winner, National Jewish Book Award for Gratitude
